“We are so happy to be back at Terrace Hill as Iowa’s first family. When our family moved here for 16 years, we loved sharing this beautiful mansion with the people of Iowa. Once again, we are proud to welcome visitors through the doors of our historic home.
This website is a great resource for learning more about the rich heritage of the official home of Iowa’s governors. This site is also designed to help you browse upcoming events and plan tours to historic Terrace Hill located at 2300 Grand Avenue in Des Moines, Iowa.
We hope to see you soon at our home, one of Iowa’s true treasures”
— Governor Terry Branstad and First Lady Christine Branstad
